North West Shelf LNG export facility launched a tender to sell at least five cargoes from April.
As a source close to the matter told Reuters, the plant set January 26 as the final date to bid for the cargoes that would be sold in two tranches.
North West Shelf project reformed the way it markets supply so that the projects stakeholders, that previously had to compete with other companies to buy the supplies, can market their equity share of spot cargo directly.
The stakeholders in the project are Woodside as operator, BHP Billiton, BP, Chevron, Shell and Japan Australia LNG.
According to Reuters the company already closed a tender launched on January 5 for three cargoes with winners to be revealed on Friday.
